Yes, the wire should just clip onto the pan, or any other piece of metal on the freezer. It is a ground wire. Hope this helps.

Usually you can access a service panel to where the fan and evaporation department is.
I don't know about a wood but I did work on an upright not long a go and took some pics.

The drain from the freezer is at the base of the evaporator section.
This is behind a plastic cover at the back inside, which must be removed to see it.

There should be screws visible, or clips which must be removed first. Often these are covered with plastic covers too.

Use a mould-killer spray, and a length of PVC covered wire to clear it.

I have a Woods refrigerator that is all fridge, no freezer compartment. Model # RFA17NAC. s/n 07605297JG. It is leaking water on the inside of the fridge and collects on the fridge floor. No manual came...


Hi Linda. We have the identical model of Woods all-fridge and
experienced this problem several times over the course of several
months. Hopefully this is still timely.





The short answer is that the clear flexible-plastic drain tube that runs
from the inside rear of the fridge down to the catch tray (underneath
the cabinet, next to the floor, behind the kick-plate) is sufficiently
plugged (with some kind of gunk, probably from a spill inside the
fridge) to cause a back-up. I suppose the inner diameter of the tube is
maybe 3/16" so it can easily get clogged. Consequently, the water runs
down the inside back of the fridge & eventually ends up in the
depressions below the crispers. In our case, after those depressions
filled (and I hadn\'t noticed), the water would run out onto the floor.





Initially, I used a fine wire to poke some of the gunk out of the tube
but I didn\'t get it all out. Just enuff to let some of the water get
thru, but the tube would plug up again. After a few repeats of the
problem, separated by a month or 2 each time, I decided a more "drastic"
tube cleaning was required.





I suppose a good strong compressed air blast might clear the tube
completely, but I didn\'t have that available so I had to use a
semi-flexible wire & sorta gunk out the tube. It\'s been about 1.5
yrs. since that more thorough tube cleaning & the problem hasn\'t
come back, so I think the tube got plugged from a spill in the fridge
(which thankfully hasn\'t re-occurred... yet).





BTW, I don\'t have the manual either, but the lower part of the tubing is
accessible from behind the fridge. I didn\'t pull it completely out
(which might have disconnected it from its fitting), I simply reamed it
out while it was in-place.





Hope this has been of some help to you.


Norm.

Ice collects on the bottom of my frost free woods freezer


im not sure if i answered this one before. but this sounds like a blocked drain, the drain is located midway behind the shelves, you can take away the catch tray and poke a coat hanger down this hole hole to dislodge the blockage.

Sometimes water comes out everywhere all over the floorand on the inside, now everything freezes inside the firdge


behind the freezer inner wall is a tube that leads down to a pan under your refrigerator it is blocked: remove the wall; remove the ice buildup on the evaporator coils then using a funnel pour hot water through the tube to the pan. be sure to empty the pan when you are done

Frigidaire side by side: water fills up in bottom of freezer


You have a blockage in your drain tube, at the bottom of the metal tray there is a hole which is connected to a tube which runs down the back of your refridge to a pan next to the compressor. It is an easy fix have done this 1000's times. Remove back panel in freezer, grab a heat gun or hair dryer and melt the ice it the bottom of tray. Clean the water in the tray with some paper towel next get some hot water in a measuring jug and pour into the pan(hot water will help melt ice in tube) repeat this process a couple of times and then get a curtain wire or something flexible to push down the pipe to clean the blockage...you will know when the blockage is clear because the water in the pan will suddenly drain off....put cover back on...make sure to unplug appliance before servicing...hope this helps :)

Either your defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat has failed. All parts are located behind the lower back panel inside the freezer. Most likely are the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.

Frozen drain line from top freezer to drip pan


Hi, Remove everything in the freezer. Get as much ice out as possible with out using sharp object. You will need to remove the rear evaporator panel inside the freezer and locate the drain hole below the evaporator. The safest way is to use a hair dryer. Once you can get to the drain hole and get the ice down inside the drain thawed (a few glasses of hot water usually gets the job done) Try and run a wire (I use a hose or biasting seringe) and get that drain hole flushed out real good. Sometimes it takes 45 minutes or so. After that is cleaned out, put the rear panel back on and you should be all set.
I hope I have helped you. Please let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Thanks
Vic

Freezing water line


Yes this freezer is built by woods corp. They had a myriad of drain icing problems. There is a kit to resolve this although sometimes it doesnt always work make sure that the plastic liner in the drain trough isnt cracked or it will let water in the liner, icing the drain. Seal any cracks with epoxy. Try running a piece of 14 guage copper wire strand (no insulation) from def heater and extend into drain hole. This will help it drain. All this is axcessed though back cover in freezer.

Kenmore upright freezer


You should check the drain hose inside underneath the freezer.This is done at the back down below. Mine was looped too high and water could not get out. I took the loop off that was holding the hose and now water can drain away without freezing. You can pour warm water down the drain hole to melt the ice in the tube if you remove the grate covering it inside the freezer. I have read that several Kenmore upright freezer
owners have the same problem. I was astonished that this was the problem and I had put up with it for too long, defrosting the freezer every 2-3 months!.Give it a try!
